So we are getting married outdoors under a pavilion that has a cement floor. The problem is, no matter what, you have to walk through the grass to get to the pavilion. This pavilion also happens to be on a small lake. Lake=geese=geese poo. So in order to avoid dodging little piles as I walk to the pavilion, I was thinking about getting an aisle runner. But I’m not sure what kind. I know there are plastic runners and paper runners. I’m just not sure what’s best for grass.
Anybody have any ideas? Aside from bribing a few nephews to go out and rake the geese poo up, I’m not sure what to do.

I would actually go for muslin (or really, any cool fabric)–it’s a little more expensive for a bolt of it, but it’s also going to be a bit easier to walk on and is biodegradable (more so than plastic and slightly more so than the coated paper ones).
Good luck figuring out what to do!

I’d bribe your nephews to rake.
I’m also having an outdoor ceremony and I decided not to have an aisle runner b/c they blow around in the slightest breeze and your heel can go through them.

Yeah, I don’t really want to do a runner. I know how hard they can be to walk on in grass. I’m just not sure what other options I have. Problem with having someone rake is that there is a lot of grass around the pavilion. So it would be a lot of raking. I don’t know what to do.
Any other ideas?

I would honestly bribe the rakers. Aisle runners outdoors are just begging for something to happen to them IME.

KateMW-I think that’s my best option.
We have the pavilion all day and our ceremony does not start until 4:30 so we’ll have plenty of time to make sure it’s ok. It might not even be a problem. The geese tend to move around. And if the park mows the day or two before, it shouldn’t be as bad of a problem. On good thing-my dress is tea lenght! So at least I don’t have to worry about my dress. Just when I’m walking up to the pavilion, I want to be looking up at my groom not down at the ground to make sure I don’t step in anything!

I agree with Daisybride, I was told that they blow away easily and it is also common for people to trip on them. My wedding planner had a bride fall down as she began to walk down the isle with her father! ah!
